Pupils at a south east Northumberland school have been taking part in an anti-crime initiative.

The youngsters at Cramlington Learning Village took part in Rhyme Against Crime.

The programme helps educate young people and prevent incidents of vandalism, theft, and anti-social behaviour.

Each year PCSO Barry Elliott visits a primary, middle or high school and gives a presentation for the young people which makes them think of the consequences of their actions and how it affects themselves, their families and the community.

The youngsters then express this in their own way and highlight their ideas by writing a rhyme, which is then made into a booklet with the support of Safer Northumberland L.Maps, with all included and given to all the young people at the school.

All the entrants were from Year 10 with Joe Buck’s entry selected as the winner.
